    50s & 60s Rock Rewind (My Music) From the R&B pioneers to the pop teen crooners, the 1950s and early 1960s were an exciting musical time for the youth of America. In this special, the spotlight shines on the sounds of the '50s and '60s rock and pop scene with all archival footage of the hit makers in their prime. Fast songs, slow dances and the back beat were all the rage as teenagers tuned in to their radios as they "readied for their steadies', and went from pony tails to proms. The age of innocence and adolescence created Rock and Roll's first revolution, with the songs that take us back to those happy days of the 1950s and early 1960s. duration 1:58:35   STEREO TVG

This concert features everything a true "APF" fan expects: an astonishing note-for-note rendering of Pink Floyd's music, evocative atmosphere, lasers and even Skippy the Kangaroo (the band's mascot). Featuring founding members Steve Mac and Jason Sawford, the band has been performing the Pink Floyd catalog for more than 20 years and has played to more than three million fans worldwide. Lovingly curated, the band's live sets are packed with the fans' favorite Floyd classics from across the years that otherwise would simply not be heard together in a concert setting. duration 1:29:45   STEREO

    Priscilla's Yoga Stretches [#63] The 130 programs are designed to air daily, Monday through Friday. The 15- minute segments are frequently coupled together to fill a 30- minute time slot at the option of local programmers. The first three shows demonstrate and explain three to four new postures or exercises per show. The last two shows serve as review so the viewer has a chance to make certain they followed and understood correctly. In addition, if the viewer missed a show, the Thursday and Friday review days bring them up-to-date. At the onset, the program is strictly teaching the "building blocks" of yoga exercise. As the series progresses, the work becomes more demanding. However, there is an effort to always have a fair balance of some basically simple postures mixed in so that everyone will have an opportunity to participate. duration 13:46
